D         Em           C
I hit the hills in the morning
D        Em          C
Dark and pretty like you
D         Em         C
Washed my car when I got there
    F              C       Em 
And tried to wash away you too
    F              C       D
And tried to wash away you too

 
Chorus:
G       F  C
Whoa-oa-oh Memphis
G      F        C   
Just a memory of a town
G       F  C
Whoa-oa-oh Memphis
              Am
Nothing there now

 
Followed my car to Zilker Park
All I had the strength to do
I sat alone and cried in the dark
Wishing I had never been through
Wishing I had never been through
 
Chorus
 
Somewhere between then and now
Held by a stone in fate
There’s a small smile built for you
Holding there in wait
Holding there in wait
 
Chorus
